I was watching Italo Labignan the other day and was wondering if he could possibly provide me with more precise detail where he would suggest to fish for tarpon in Cuba. I think it was around the Isle of Youth. Do you have any information on guides, accomidation, etc? I have fished the Gardens of the Queens several times going out of Casilda near Trinidad and I\’m quite familiar with Cuba in general. I am a big fan of your show!!! You are a real pro!!! Thank you very much!!! John Nesbitt.

Hi John…Thank you for your kind words. The best people to ask specific questions you have on tarpon fishing in cuba is either Filippo at, www.avalons.net , or Mike Gifford at, www.countrypleasures.com . Over the last few years I have worked with both individuals to proudce high-quality saltwater fishing programs in Cuba. Avalons operates several fishing lodges off the south-coast of Cuba that offer trophy fishing for tarpon, bonefish, permit, snapper, snook, and much, much, more. Mike Gifford operates a fly shop in Calgary, Alberta and annually takes many people fishing in Cuba. He has worked as our liason and also worked with me on-camera in the production of Cuba fishing shows….God bless you, Italo
